Defensive Driver Training
On South African roads there
are over half-a-million collisions per year, and your chances
of being involved in one are extremely high. We have structured
our defensive driver training course in such a way to equip
drivers with the necessary attitude, awareness and physical
skills to avoid being in potentially life threatening situations.
Module1 - Theory
theoretical presentation covers all the necessary driving
skills required for a defensive driver. Subjects including
mental, physical and emergency skills are covered in detail.

Module 2 - On Road Training
During the on-road training, participants are first assessed
on their current driving abilities and then shown the correct
methods for safer driving. Training is conducted on a one
on one basis, ensuring a more concentrated training session.
This on-road training takes place in the participant’s
own vehicle. Training time is approximately 75 minutes, followed
by a short de-briefing period. Participants then receive a
complete report on their driving, with areas in need of attention
Module 3 - Evaluation
Approximately four weeks after initial training, participants
are evaluated on whether they are driving to the approved
defensive driving standards.On successful completion of
the course, each participant will receive a Defensive Driving
Certificate, which is valid for a two-year period. We currently
offer one of the most stringent competence levels in our
industry with a minimum pass mark of 70% required. Through
practising and applying the defensive skills this mark is
easily obtainable, likewise laziness and the wrong attitudes
will certainly show in the candidates end result.
Final driver reports will be handed to the responsible
company representative to add to their driver profiles.
